Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the role of miR-183 in modulating cell growth and apoptosis of tongue squamous cell carcinoma SCC25 cell line. Human squamous epithelial cell and squamous cell carcinoma cell line SCC25 was used, and miR-183 was inhibited. Cell growth, colony formation, and apoptotic rate, as well as the expression of caspase 3 and BCL-xL, were detected. Results showed that miR-183 was significantly overexpressed in the SCC25 cell line when compared with normal control. The miR-183 inhibitor reduced cell growth and colony formation, while the apoptosis percentage was significantly increased. The expression of activated caspase 3 and BCL-xL was obviously up- and downregulated in siRNA-transfected cells, respectively. In conclusion, miR-183 contributed to cell growth and proliferation, and suppressed cell apoptosis in SCC25 cells. Therefore, miR-183 might serve as a therapeutic target in tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC).
